The Hills Lyrics
Jump to:
Your man on the road, he doin' promo
You said, "Keep our business on the low-low"
I'm just tryna get you out the friend zone
Cause you look even better than the photos
I can't find your house, send me the info
Drivin' through the gated residential
Found out I was comin', sent your friends home
Keep on tryna hide it but your friends know

[Chorus]
I only call you when it's half past five
The only time that I'll be by your side
I only love it when you touch me, not feel me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me, yeah
I only call you when it's half past five
The only time I'd ever call you mine
I only love it when you touch me, not feel me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me, babe

I'ma let you know and keep it simple
Tryna keep it up, don't seem so simple
I just f*cked two bitches 'fore I saw you
And you gon' have to do it at my tempo
Always tryna send me off to rehab
Drugs started feelin' like it's decaf
I'm just tryna live life for the moment
And all these motherf*ckers want a real love

I only call you when it's half past five
The only time that I'll be by your side
I only love it when you touch me, not feel me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me, yeah
I only call you when it's half past five
The only time I'd ever call you mine
I only love it when you touch me, not feel me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me, babe

[Bridge]
Hills have eyes, the hills have eyes
Who are you to judge, who are you to judge?
Hide your lies, girl, hide your lies
Only you to trust, only you

I only call you when it's half past five
The only time that I'll be by your side
I only love it when you touch me, not feel me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me, yeah
I only call you when it's half past five
The only time I'd ever call you mine
I only love it when you touch me, not feel me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me
When I'm f*cked up, that's the real me, babe

[Outro: In Amharic*]
Ewedihalehu
Yene konjo, ewedihalehu
Yene fikir, fikir, fikir, fikir
Yene fikir, fikir, fikir, fikir
Ewedihalehu
Yene konjo, ewedihalehu

[*Translates to:]
(I love you very much
My beautiful, I love you very much
My love, love, love, love
My love, love, love, love
I love you very much
My beautiful, I love you very much)

The Hills Info:

• In the song he again hints about a secret relationship with a famous singer, and now goes even further to say that the girl’s "boyfriend" is also a singer or rapper. Rumor has it he's talking about Ariana Grande who was dating Big Sean at the time.

• "The Hills" is a reference to the the movie "The Hills Have Eyes". He feels everybody's being watched and will find out what's going on, from both perspectives. It's also a reference to the Hollywood Hills, where he took up residence.

• Half past five is a reference to the saying "It’s Five O'Clock Somewhere", which is used to justify getting drunk or high regardless of what time it may be.

• The outro is in the Amharic language. In the live version of the song, Abel uses the masculine versions of the same words. Ewedishalehu is Amharic for saying "I love you very much" to a woman.

On the recorded version of the song, a female voice sings the final lines, using the feminine versions of these words (Ewedihalehu to say "I love you very much" to a man).
